Thunderstorms are expected to pop up again late in the afternoon. The National Weather Service has posted a severe thunderstorm watch until 9 p.m. for a region that includes the greater Twin Cities and western Wisconsin:
Two rounds of showers, thunder Tuesday
After a first round of scattered showers Tuesday morning, we’ll see skies partially clear out. This will allow temperatures to warm up into the low to mid-80s.
With the daytime heating and a cool front moving across the state, more thunderstorms will pop up late Tuesday afternoon and early evening.
There’s a risk some of these storms could be strong to severe. There’s a marginal risk (level 1 out of 5) from the Twin Cities into western Wisconsin with a higher, slight risk (level 2 out of 5) in western Wisconsin.
90-degree temperatures return
Things will heat back up Wednesday and Thursday. Along with higher temperatures, dew points will increase.
Highs Wednesday will be near 90 in western and southern Minnesota.
